Single Trips

If you choose not to buy a term pass, the cost per trip for each student is $4.50. For one-off trips, money should be tendered to the driver. Under no circumstances should a student be using a bus unless one of the above options has been used. Should there be outstanding fares at the end of the term, these will be charged on the Fee Statement for the following term and the bus will not be able to be used until outstanding fares are paid. We would appreciate your co-operation so that we can provide you with a bus service which is efficient and at the minimum cost to you.

Transport Assistance Scheme

The Non Government Schools Transport Assistance Scheme (NGSTAS), funded by the State Government, provides financial assistance to families whose children have been assessed as being eligible for travel assistance to attend an approved non-state school.

The NGSTAS consists of two programs:

  • The Bus Fare Assistance Program (PFAP) - this assistance does not cover travel on Calvary owned or leased buses.
  • The Students with Disabilities (SWD) Transport Assistance Program - click here for more information regarding these two programs.
